I am often asked this question. From a personal point of view … I eat anything I want to … although I do pay the price every now and then. This can be in a variety of forms. They are:
- stomach cramps – leading to one or two episodes of diarrhea to very distressing diarrhea which can last 1/2 day to a day … (and on rare occasions requiring rehydration at the hospital). One of these occasions that took me to the hospital emergency was after over-indulging in the healthy food olive oil and dukkah (middle eastern mixture of nuts, seeds and spices). If you do get diarrhea – the product Gastrolyte is extraordinary for easing it – within minutes. I highly recommend this product.
- waking up the next morning feeling like a bus had hit me, with a headache, puffy eyes, swollen around the back of the neck, a feeling heavy energy and uncomfortable in my body. This is because my liver didn’t cope with the food I ate the day before which would have involved fat of some description.
- becoming very fatigued and needing to sleep.
When you have discomfort or don’t feel well after you have had your gallbladder removed – take a note of what you have eaten in the previous 24 hours and give consideration to the fact that your liver may have had difficulty with the fatty foods you ate.
Even after you have had your gallbladder removed, the cold pressed virgin olive oil + lemon juice remedy for gallstones which is in the post Gallbladder – surgery or no surgery can also be used to cleanse your liver and make a difference to how you are feeling.
I do this olive oil and lemon juice cleanse once a year – even though I had my gallbladder removed almost 20 years ago.
So – the things that are delicious treats, but I don’t eat too often are:
- fish and chips – (yes – the ones that are cooked at the take away food shop)
- bacon from the supermarket (although – you will be interested to know that I can eat organic, naturally smoked bacon without any problems)
